Introducing the New Standard in Cables for In-Circuit Programming.... In-Circuit Programming Cables that Save Cost and Space on Every Board!

Upcoming Exhibitions in May: ESC (Boston) IoT World (Santa Clara) Sensors+Test (Nuremberg)

We'd be delighted to see you at one of this month's trade shows:

Embedded Systems Conference (Boston) May 3&4 at Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Booth 885

IoT World May 16,17,18 at Santa Clara Convention Center Booth 808

Sensors+Test (Nuremberg) May 30-June 1st. Hall 2 Booth 2-203.

Hope to see you there!

Visit us at Embedded World, Nuremberg March 14th-16th

We're excited to be at Embedded World 2017 - visit us in hall 4-127 (we'll be about halfway allong the North edge of the hall). Take a sneak-peek at the latest in our new range of connectors that save even more space and allows unhindered side access for stacked PCB's!


See us at ESC Minneapolis Sept 21-22 and Sensors Expo Chicago Sept 27-28 also ARM Techcon and Electronica

We'll be at all of the above shows over the next couple of weeks and months. All have free admission at least for the Expo. Come see our latest products and discuss your needs with us.

ESC Midwest - Minneapolis - joined with MDM, PLASTEC, Design & Manufacturing, Pack and ATX  Wed Sept 21 (10am-5pm) and Thurs 22 (10am - 4pm) Booth 319

Sensors Expo (Chicago), Booth 1013  Tues Sept 27 9am-5pm and Wednesday 28th 9am-4pm

TC-LATTICE adapter - a new solution for Lattice devices

We have a new 12-pin to 6-pin adapter that plugs into the Lattice HW-USBN-2B Programming Cable. It allows use of our 6-pin TC2030-IDC cables instead of the unwieldy twelve flying lead solution that comes with the programmer. TC2030 footprints can be as small as the footprint of an 0805 resitor and save all of the cost and most of the space of a physical JTAG connector on your PCB. Our adapter also has an on-board 500 Ohm resistor solving the problem of the HW-USBN-2B programmer elevating VCC if your target is very low power. See

Visit us at Sensors Expo, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, June 22-23rd

Come visit us in Booth 1235!

Wed 22nd 10am - 5:30pm, Thurs 23rd 10am to 3pm

FTDI USB to TC2030 Serial Cables, and Real-Time Current Monitor with USB covering 6 decades of current range.

Did you know we sell FTDI FT232 USB to Serial Cables fitted with TC2030 Plug-of-Nails TM Connectors?

These are ideal for factory calibration, configuration and calibration type uses, or anywhere you want an extra serial interface for debugging. Needing a PCB footprint about the size of an 0805 resistor, the No Legs versions are perfect for saving on a large physical serial debug/configuration connector.

See for more detail.

Also, we have some very handy DevTools such as the EE203 Real-Time Current Monitor which covers 6 decades of current measurement (from 1uA to 1A) and has a USB output. Fantastic for debugging and visually seeing the low power modes of your MCU (have you left an input floating or a clock running when it should be turned off). This device has been flying off the shelves - more stock expected today.

Check out our latest improved cables at Sensors Expo, Long Beach, CA!

Now that we've completed the move of all connector and cable assembly and overmolding to be fully in-house here in California with all plastic parts made locally in USA, we've been able to make some small but very significant improvements to our cables. Better strain-relief on the ribbon-cable versions means improved durability in the production environment and the much easier to squeeze legs on the legged versions make them easier to use.

If you're coming to Sensors Expo and Conference in Long Beach this week be sure to check out our new and improved cables at the Tag-Connect Booth #909 



See us at Sensors Expo, June 10th-11th Long Beach Convention Center, California

Please visit us at Booth 909 at the Sensors Expo & Conference  June 10th-11th in Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California.

Expo hours: Wed 10am-5:30pm, Thurs 10am-3pm.
